Please join us to celebrate Love Your Body Month on February 28th. We will be showing America the Beautiful the documentary to explore America's unhealthy obsession with beauty.
Filmmaker Darryl Roberts goes on a two year journey to examine America’s obsession; physical perfection. In America the Beautiful, we learn secrets, confessions, and strikingly harsh realities as Roberts unearths the origins and deadly risks of our nation’s quest for physical perfection.
In America the Beautiful we see how these increasingly unattainable images contribute greatly to the rise in low self-esteem, body dismorphia, and eating disorders for young women and girls who also happen to be the beauty industry’s largest consumers. Who actually benefits from this high-priced journey towards this ideal? Is corporate America’s bottom line so important that it justifies a nation’s psychosis? What are the true costs of our obsession with youth, beauty, and a slender physique?
Join us Friday evening at 7pm at Muse for Life, a community inspiration center www.museforlife.com. They have graciously opened their dance room for us to see the movie. We will begin the evening with a choclate and tea tasting and show the movie at 8pm. Check out their incredible mission!
There is no cost to attend but a Love Donation will be appreciated.
